Ah, this is much more like it. There are no flies on Enduro Racer when it comes to good clean racing fun. For once, a racing game concentrates on gameplay rather than on the number of tracks or prettiness of backgrounds, and although we're in strict monochrome here you'll play no more atmospheric and effective a burn-'em-up. It's fast, exciting and its five tracks come with a full compliment of hazards - massive rocks that do more than stop you in your tracks, fences that need to be jumped over, huge dips and peaks in the road that stop you seeing what comes next. And for once the programmers have actually discovered what collision detection entails - there and none of those awkward I-wasn't-even-close crashes that budget titles especially are so fond of. A real cracker, and highly recommended, even if it has appeared on 56,000 compilations already.
